2.5/10 ⭐️ book review part 2 "how to understand someone better than your own friends" chapter is another bold claim 999. As golden as his questions are (that skips small talk) he couldn't have used a worse analogy. So this guy and dave opened up too much to each other the first time and they never heard from each other again. That's useful but I admire the writers honesty, not his iq though at this stage.
These are not people skills but complete employment/ company targeted advice for many chapters: Create your own advisory boards/ hire slow and fire fast "Help people come up with your idea" was again trashed with the worst analogy. Dave tells his idea of a cash giving ad campaign being rejected coming as a big blow, but the next day the client comes back and decides to accept it if they give out logo stickers. To that he attributes it to helping his manager buy his idea as her own, when he did no such persuasion prior other than sheer luck. Again, False attribution.
The worst, most mindboggling, or the two most embarrassing chapters are on storytelling and "let go to get of what you want"
Storytelling is persuasive:
Introduces with an bidding war on URL purchases of storytelling.com storytellit.com for 70 percent of the chapter to then claim that storytelling is effective, I cannot feel like my iq has been more belittled than in this chapter so I have uploaded a photo after this photo for you to gasp at. This bidding story has legit 1 link to his message - it's in the URL.
